So, I finished work today and I do not have to go back to the office until October 28, woohoo!

However I have a mass of things to do before I head off on Wednesday, not the least being schlepping up to the old home town tomorrow to visit the family. It doesn't help that I woke up with a mild case of laryngitis this morning and I can barely talk. Why do these things have to happen just before I take off on adventures?

I've also lost my Myki (public transport) card. I think I dropped it outside of North Melbourne station this morning. These things are sent to try us, I guess.

*sigh*

Thing 1: I have an unexpected week off from work. I was supposed to have August 20-31 off, but due to [reasons] I had to cancel that leave so I told my boos I'd take this week off in compensation. I haven't had a whole week off work in nearly a year. It's been nice.

Thing 2: I am house and cat sitting for my friends Brian and Katherine and in my disorientated, caffeine-deprived stupor this morning I somehow thought that I could heat the electric kettle on the stove top. Fortunately I didn't set the kitchen on fire but it was close and Brian and Katherine now have a shiny new kettle.

Thing 3: I went to see Cabin in the Woods today and I really enjoyed it. I'm not normally a horror movie fan - they mostly bore me to tears - but I really enjoyed this one, especailly the sly Whedonesque humour the most delicious plot twist I've seen in a long time.

Thing 4: Since I've decided that Jeremy Renner is now my new pretend boyfriend, I am, of course, obliged to work my way through his entire filmic oeuvre. I'm not sure I can handle watching SWAT again, especially since I know how it ends for him and, well, weeJosh, but I've recently viewed Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol and rather enjoyed it, this morning I watched his episode of Angel and I have The Hurt Locker waiting for me to collect from the student union library. I suspect I'm going to have to track down his more obscure offerings on amazon, but so far my fannish exploration has been rather enjoyable for once and not full of the sort of cringe-worthy duds one watched simply because one's current object of affection was in need of a pay cheque.

Thing 5: The cat is sitting on top of the TV (it's one of those old fashioned box things). It's rather adorable!

You know you've probably been reading too much Clint/Coulson fic when you go to write 'clinical' and end up writing 'clint' instead.

Doh!

I had all my hair cut off today.

Seriously, when I left home this morning it was down around my shoulder blades. Now it's hovering around my ears. There was a lot of hair on the floor by the time my hairdresser had finished.

I'm feeling quite light-headed, actually.

OMG, I am actually posting using my laptop for the first time in, like, forever! Why, do you ask? Cos I finally got my arse into gear and acquired a new internet connection, that's why. Woot!

So, yeah, my finger is still all taped up, but I can use it a bit more (even though typing is without a left index finger is - interesting) but now my car has died - or is about to die - and I've got this report to finish by the end of the day and my tummy hurts from the chicken parmigiana I ate for lunch yesterday and god only knows what they've put in the soup at the new cafe on campus cos now I'm feeling like I've eaten too much MSG-laced Chinese food, and thank the lord we have a long weekend coming up cos I want to finish my new Steve/Bucky story and do some work in the garden and maybe try and get over all the crap food I've eaten this week.

So yeah.
